effects of the new tax bill,
passed over the Presidential veto, will be felt when higher postal
become effective March 26th. Local postage advances to 3¢,
other postal increases affect registered and insured mail, c.o.d.'s and
money orders. Stamp collectors will be interested to learn
rates will be raised from 6¢ to 8¢ per ounce, which forecasts
a new stamp.
